Woman wins 70% of assets in divorce Now I know the normal lot here will start yelling about how this is an example of misandry man-hating blah blah blah. Instead of doing that perhaps you should stop a moment. And read the article. And note how she basically paused her career progression in good faith only to have her partner basically shaft her. So when she renters the job market she's a couple decades behind the people who stayed in employment. Oh, and this is only a lump sum. The partner is still earning much more than she is so this isn't going to effect his ongoing earnings and will help her. Remember, marriage is a partnership. You screw your partner over don't be surprised when the court screws you over.
